Leaf and Walnut Dyed Silk Scarf

Leaf and Walnut Dyed Silk Scarf

55.00

This elegant silk scarf is the perfect combination of luxury and natural design. It is made of silk charmeuse, which is a muted crepe on the backside and shimmery satin on the top. The leaf prints are created using only the natural pigments of real leaves in a time consuming, but completely environmentally friendly process known as "eco printing" or "botanical dyeing." No synthetic inks, dyes or pigments are used. You can learn more about my eco printing process here: https://www.sesameseeddesigns.com/eco-printing/

Real leaves are gathered and bundled with the fabric making each scarf completely one of a kind. This has been printed with cotinus, or smokebush, leaves gathered from my neighborhood. The edges have been dyed using a dye made from black walnuts and onion skins, creating a beautiful brown design with hints of orange.

You will receive the exact scarf shown in the photos.

Eco-Printing requires the application of heat and pressure to fabric, often resulting in a more textured appearance of the fabric. While small wrinkles in the fabric may ease over time, they are a semi-permanent feature of the eco-printing process.
